Pingaling posted the following comment on our post from January on the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card - 25,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles and First Year Free!
"Looks like the technical issue is back. Site application kept running a loop - aeroplan details, td login, select card, back to aeroplan details, etc..etc.."
We talked to TD about this and here is their response:
"There is one issue that we know about, when existing TD customers are logged into Easyweb and are unable to proceed with completing an application. The target fix date for this issue is April 9th.
If this issue is happening to those who are not TD customers/logged into Easyweb, let me know if there are any further details (such as which step, what the error message is) so we can flag the issue for a fix.
In the meantime, if customers are still having trouble with the online application, I would recommend that they call our Credit Card Call Centre at 1-800-983-8472 and mention the Aeroplan offer on Rewards Canada with the code REPWQ. The phone rep will have to input this code so that we can fulfill the offer for the customer"
So if this is not the issue you are seeing, please comment below at what step or what the error message is so that we can pass it along to TD.

  1. I know people have had technology issues with the TD card on application, but have people also noticed how many people get declined in the online applications? We are now 4 friends (myself included) with excellent credit scores who were declined for the online applications, then told to go to the bank, and apply there and who were all then offered the lesser application of not having the first year fee waved and only receiving 15 000 miles. All of us were then approved in branch. It is also only after we ask that the original promotion be applied before it was, even mentioned or offered. The card is fine, but the experience really left a sour taste in my (our) mouth(s).
